Chancellor Woodson's houseConstruction continues next to the Park Alumni Center as crews work to complete the new residence for Chancellor Randy Woodson and his wife, Susan, by this fall.

Kevin MacNaughton, associate vice chancellor for facilities, says  the chancellor’s new residence is on pace to be completed in October.

“Furnishings and personal effects will be moving into the new residence in October,” MacNaughton says, “and the Woodsons will enjoy Thanksgiving in the new residence.”

The process, which began March 2010 when ground was broken, has been documented on This Red House. The cost of the residence sits at $3.5 million. Becky Bumgardner, executive director for university development, said in an email that the residence is being fully funded by private and in-kind donations.

College of Design Dean Marvin Malecha is the designer. The residence will replace the current chancellor’s residence, which was built in 1928. It will serve as the new home of the Gregg Museum of Art and Design.
